The Toyota, Honda, Kia and other dealers in Fort Wayne say their cars get good gas mileage. The proof is in the pudding. Check out this picture.

This past weekend my Son, Quincy, and I had the privilege of attending the Final Four for NCAA Men’s Basketball in Houston, Texas.  Since we found out so late in the week that we had tickets it was cost prohibitive to fly.  We got in the car on Friday afternoon and made the 18 hour trek southwest.  We left Fort Wayne around 1:00 pm eastern time.  We drove in a 2011 Hyundai Azera.  The Azera is a full size luxury car that compares with the Nissan Maxima, Buick Lucerne and Toyota Avalon.  Not the type of car you would think of when taking about good gas mileage.  When we finally had to stop for gas we had already driven through Indianapolis, Terre Haute, Effingham, Illinois and across the Mississippi River and in to Missouri.  We drove for over 500 miles on the first tank of gas. 

After realizing the car was getting phenomenal gas mileage, I decided to check it out on the way home. 

We piled in the car at 6:30 AM on Tuesday to make the 1200 mile trip home.  Straight through, non-stop.  I reset the trip meter and the gas mileage calculator and off we went.  Obviously we weren’t looking forward to the long drive so I drove as fast as I could.  I noticed that at 80 m.p.h. the “eco” light would go off.  That told me that I wasn’t getting the optimum fuel economy.  I backed off the cruise to 79 and the light came back on.  Off we went.

I had totally forgotten about the gas mileage 7 hours later as we rounded Little Rock, Arkansas.  I flipped through the options on the trip computer.  29.5 miles per gallon is what the computer said.  I was amazed.

We ended up driving from Fort Wayne, Indiana to Houston, Texas on only 5 tanks of gas.  When we got back, we still had a half tank left.  That is why Hyundai was named , the Most Fuel Efficient car maker in the U.S.
